Monoprice at CES 2015 - More than just cables

CES 2015 continues to roll on and today we had the chance to stop by and see the folks at Monoprice and some of their new products they've introduced for the upcoming year. Monoprice was at one time best know for their cables and accessories, but they've continued to add new products, lots and lots of new products. Monoprice was proudly showing off their new 28" 60Hz 4K monitor. There have been a good number of 4k monitors hitting the market in recent months, however, Monoprice is offering theirs for $499 USD which is going to be tough to beat. 



In addition to Monoprice's new 28" 4K monitor, they were also showing off their 30" 2560x1440 which retails for about the same money. This panel has higher quality color reproduction which justifies the higher price-per-pixel.


New Versions of Windows 10

To make things easier for customers, Windows 10 is going to come in many different versions.

You'll be able to get the following flavors of Windows 10:

  • Windows 10 Home
  • Windows 10 Mobile
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 10 Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Education
  • Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise
  • Windows 10 IoT Core (for low cost, small footprint devices, eg. gateways)
  • Windows 10 Enterprise for Industry (devices like ATM's, Point of Sale Devices, etc.)
  • Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise for Industry (devices like ATM's, Point of Sale Devices, etc.)

Quote from Microsoft:

We designed Windows 10 to deliver a more personal computing experience across a range of devices. An experience optimized for each device type, but familiar to all. Windows 10 will power an incredibly broad range of devices – everything from PCs, tablets, phones, Xbox One, Microsoft HoloLens and Surface Hub. It will also power the world around us, core to devices making up the Internet of Things, everything from elevators to ATMs to heart rate monitors to wearables. No matter which Windows 10 device our customers use, the experience will feel comfortable, and there will be a single, universal Windows Store where they can find, try and buy Universal Windows apps.

Should be interesting to see how the multiple versions are received. For the average consumer there aren't too many choice outside of Home and Pro which isn't overly confusing but Microsoft has always taken some flak over too many versions which doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon. You can read more about all of the versions over at Microsoft's Blog.

ZOTAC @ CES 2016

We had the chance today to get the full tour from ZOTAC of their new products for 2016 and they didn't disappoint as they've made a bunch of new product announcements for CES.

ZOTAC is pretty popular in the mini PC market thanks to the success of their ZBOX devices. ZOTAC is once again adding even more options to their already extensive lineup with devices like the ZOTAC PC stick, the ZBOX PICO, the ZBOX C Series, and they've even got a ZBOX that can now support 6 displays.

The ZBOX PC stick features a full Intel Cherry Trail system on a device that plugs straight into your HDMI port on your TV for a killer home entertainment system.

The ZBOX C Series features the new Intel Skylake CPU which offers some pretty impressive performance in the small ZBOX form factor. This is the most powerful ZBOX available and offers more performance while still being super small.


ZOTAC also offers a lineup of SSD products with one of the new addition in 2016 being a PCI-E SSD offering. The PCI-E SSD from ZOTAC is still a few months out but they are very excited at the performance numbers a drive like this will be capable of.

ZOTAC's Premium lineup of SSD drives now includes capacities of  240 and 480GBs. Their Premium SSD drives all feature Toshiba MLC NAND flash memory and are more than capable of giving your system a nice boost in performance.
